Take Care of Oregon Days: May 2009
Thank you Volunteers!
THANK YOU! To the thousands of Take Care of Oregon Days volunteers who turned all through the month of May to give back to our state. We will have our final volunteer and project count very soon. Take a moment to check out photos taken at project sites and upload your own at the Take Care of Oregon Days Flickr site.
Have a Take Care of Oregon Days project planned this summer? Although the TCO Days project officially ended May 31st, we would still like to hear what your church, organization, or school is doing to give back to Oregon on her birthday. Email Aili Schreiner with the who, what, when, where, and how for your project. Thank you for volunteering to take care of Oregon in 2009!
